(Special to The Daily)
DETROIT, May 12.-Hard-work-
ing Les Veigel deserved to win his
first baseball game for Michigan to-
day, but a trick of fate wouldn't
allow it.
As it was, the Wolverines sneaked
out a 2-1 victory over Wayne Uni-
versity and the curly-topped right-
hander assisted with seven innings
of tight pitching, but a teammate will
receive credit for the triumph.
Veigel was replaced by Mase (Lef-
ty) Gould in the seventh, after the
rartars had tie the score with their

receive the official recognition as the

None the less, Veigel was effective,
allowing only four hits during his
appearance on the mound - probably
his best performance in three years
in a Wolverine uniform.
The game was a hitter's holiday
with each side being able to collect
only five scattered hits. But the Wol-
verines were able to couple some of
their hits with Wayne errors to give
Gould his fourth victory of the sea-

Putting on the pressure as they

brought home the Big Ten bacon for
their fourth straight conference win

fessor Randall-has been with the1
University since 1899 and chairman
of the physics department since 1918.
Under his leadership the department
has become one of the biggest physics
centers of the world.
During his years as chairman he
continually extended and expanded
the research program and facilities.
He originated the Symposium in The-
oretical Physics which is held here
during the summer months and which
has brought many world-renowned
physicists to Ann Arbor.

his outstanding work in the field of

established with money left to the
University by a graduate, Henry Rus-

of the faculty, but it was finally de-
cided to use the return from the
funds to encourage and reward out-
standing work by the staff members.

No. 3 Man Missing
Bulletins -
LONDON, May 13. -(A)- The
Ministry of Information an-
nounced today that the man who
landed from a German fighter
plane in Scotland had been iden-
tified as Rudolf Hess-"beyond
all possible doubt."
LONDON, May 13.-(A')-The
Daily Express today quoted Ru-
dolf Hess as saying after landing
in Scotland:
"Ihad intended landing the
plane but I Gould not find a-suit-
able landing ground so I stalled

try and jumped out."
(By The Associated Press)
Rudolf Hess, Hitler's bettle-browed
henchman and the official No. 2
heir to the Nazi realm, has parachut-
ed to the soil of Britain from a
commandeered Nazi fighter plane he
took aloft in direct defiance of the
Fuehrer's orders.
As the Nazi party leader and erst-
while Nazi war councillor, {ess thus
became a prize of war beyond the
wildest dreams of the British.
The first clue that something had
happened to Hess came from Gei1 -
many Monday. The Nazi Party of
which fHess was leader, announced
that though he had been forbidden
by Hitler to fly, he took a plane from
Augsburg, Bavaria, Saturday at 6 p.m.
and presumably had met an "acci-
dent," since he had not been heard
from since. The official announce-
ment said he had left a note indi-
cating he had "hallucinations." The
implication was that he was dead,
It was clear that Hess' disappear-
ance from Germany was no accident.
And assuming that the Nazi an-
nouncement correctly gave his point
of departure, he could not have nade
so great a mistake - for it is more
than 800 air miles from Augsburg
to Glasgow - the absolute maximum
range of a fully-fueled Messerschmitt
110 fighter plane.
Diplomats Weigh
Possibility Of Split
WASHINGTON, May12-()- The
flight of Rudolf Hess, Nazi party
leader and probably Adolf Hitler's
most intimate associate, into British
hands in Scotland aroused intense
speculation in diplomatic quarters
tonight on the possibility of a split
in the Nazi hierarchy.
Diplomats familiar with Nazi poli-
tics described Hess as a tremendously
important figure in Germar'y. His
power as party leader was strength-
ened by his close personal relations
with Hitler dating back to early party
As Hitler's deputy for party affairs,
Hess was the controller of political
patronage and was considered almost
fanatically devoted to the Fuehrer.
Tall, dark and somewhat retiring,
he usually wore only the ]Brown shirt
and trousers of the S. A. uniform -
sometimes appearing coatless even at
the most formal functions.
Whatever the circumstances, of his
flight and even accepting the Ger-
man version casting doubf on his san-

ity, informed diplomats agreed that
it would prove a severe shock to the
German people.
Speculation about a possible break
in high Nazi ranks centered on the
theory that Hess fled Germany for

me-ce O_ nCnl 11110 l

A policy of isolation means not only
shirking our moral responsibility but
is a practical impossibility. Karl Detz-
er, roving editor of Readers' Digest
declared yesterday in an interview.
In spite of Colonel Lindbergh's ex-
hortation for a practical view, he
stated, we have a moral obligation toI
support democracy and freedom in
the face of the most brutal, cun-
ning savagery in modern history,
Moral contiderations, though, are
beside the point, he believes, be-
cause Hitler has taken the decision
out of our hands. In fact the Aus-
trian corporal has already begun his
attack upon us in his efforts to un-
dermine our morale, playing race

but with a Nazi England Hitler
would have a serious superiority.
Production alone is not enough,
though, he said, we must deliver, the
goods by whatever means are nec-
essary. Britain cannot spare naval
vessels for convoy duty, so we should
be prepared to assume that task.
Election of the second path, acqui-
escance, can only lead to a fate like
that of Czechoslovakia in a world of
Germanic rulers arid enslaved "in-
ferior races," Mr. Detzer stated.
We must not let "3,000 miles of
water" deceive us, he warned, for the
statement that if Hitler cannot cross
the 20 miles of the English Channel,
we are certainly safe omits the im-
